Chapter 8. Understanding Colors and Channels > Using Multi-Channel Color Mode

Using Multi-Channel Color Mode

The Multi-Channel color mode is a specialized mode. Images converted into multi-channel color mode, converts the original color channels into shades of gray, with the grays based on the original luminosity values of the original image, and the original channels are converted into spot colors. Since multi-channel mode is used almost exclusively by the printing industry, converting a CMYK image into multi-channel color mode, produces Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black spot channels, and converting an RGB image produces Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow spot channels, minus the Black channel. In both instances, converting to Multi-channel causes the loss of the mixing, or Composite channel.
